Dr. A

Yesterday, a friend from Iraq... who's actually my bro's friend... sent us an email with a link to a website he created in memory of his late father Dr. A.

Dr. A. was my dad's colleague and friend from 1991-2005 in Libya. They left in 2005 to go back to their homeland Iraq... only to discover that Dr. A had lung cancer ... for the next 2 years he bravely fought it... between Iraq and Lebanon for treatment... he died last March 29th... Allah yer7amo... God bless his soul and grant his wife and his only son A.. faith, peace, patience... Allah yehawen 3aleihom w yesabbarhom...

The site included pieces Dr. A had written... his life history... stuff his friends said and wrote about him ... and photos of him... I've always known Dr. A as this handsome, striking man... strong, outgoing and just "full of life".... most of his photos show just that... but I almost didn't recognise him in the photos taken in his last couple of years during his illness... got me thinking... again... at the things we take for granted... our health and vitality... and how it's really not in our hands...

All I can say is what A. says at the end of all his emails... that he wishes everyone good health always... "lel jamee3 dawaam else77a wel 3afeyah"

PS. "A" asked all those who visit his Dad's site to pray for him "ed3oloh belra7mah" ... and I, in turn, ask you to make a prayer for this man too...
